Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 707, Indian Creek Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"WILLIAM A. ENT was born in Washington County, Pennsylvania, October 3, 1849, and is the youngest of three children born to LAMBERT and SARAH (FISHEL) ENT, the former a native of New Jersey and the latter of Pennsylvania, and both of German descent. LAMBERT ENT was a shoemaker, and for many years followed his trade in Pennsylvania. In 1853, he came with his wife and family to this township, bought forty acres of unimproved land, built a frame house, and was here employed in farming and at his trade until his death, July 10, 1881; MRS. SARAH ENT died October 19, 1870. WILLIAM A. ENT received a fair common school education, and until twenty-one years of age assisted on the home farm. He then worked out by the month for about three years, and then moved on the home place where he now resides. He was married, March 21, 1880, to CLARRIE B.
